I've finished three more crumb quilts for Quilts Beyond Borders (QBB). I first heard about QBB from Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict as part of her Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge. Since then the Sunshine Online Quilt Guild (the only guild to which I belong) has decided to also sponsor QBB in addition to Wrap-a-Smile.
I challenged myself this year to 1. Finish up some of my 73 UFOs and 2. To see how many donation quilts I can make this year from scraps. I've been following along with the color of the month with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year so that keeps me motivated. So far I've completed a donation quilt in all the colors of the month...hot pink, orange, purple, green, sapphire blue
The latest finish is a fish quilt- the Sapphire Blue Fish. Someone with Sunshine posted a link to a Flickr picture of a fish quilt and I knew that would be my next crumb project.
With my quilting on plain Jane (my DSM) I tried to simulate waves and bubbles in the deep nether regions of the sea and did some loops in the fish.
Crumby Orange Stars is my next quilt. You can see a secondary pattern and no stars at all if you look at it for too long. I actually didn't think I had enough orange scraps for a quilt. Surprise, surprise! Where did all that orange come from?
And this one I'll call Joseph's Amazing Technicolor Dream Quilt and it uses scraps of many colors+ muslin.
So, I've found a box just perfect for these three quilts and the Green Bear Tracks I finished last week. As soon as I get the labels sewn on they will be in the mail.
Feeling really crumby! How about you?
May I get a Whoop, Whoop, please? Others are whooping it up over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. What are you whooping about?
This Memorial Day weekend I will be working on my Quilts of Valor Quilts and doing a virtual sew along with Heartstrings. You are welcome to join in also!!
